CASology Week 234: YOUTH

Welcome to Week 234 at CASology!

I am really curious to see where this Cue word takes you. Kitty Bee Designs is our sponsor this week and offered the Design Team a couple of adorable images to use on our cards. I choose to work with this sweet, sleeping ladybug which immediately made me think of welcoming a new baby.

This card is a bit of a happy experiment as I was surprised how well a watercoloring technique worked with a digital image. A lightweight watercolor paper went through my printer easily and multiple images were printed as I played with different mediums and colors. In the end, this red-headed lady bug was my favorite. The image is colored with a mix of Zig pens and Distress Inks and left to dry before die cut and the MFT sentiment added.

Check out the Design Team cards for more terrific inspiration!
